Top Marques Monaco announces ground-breaking launches for 2016

Top Marques, the ‘ultimate luxury car show’ now in its 13th edition, is proud to announce a number of exclusive premieres at the event, taking place from 14th to 17th April at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

ArcaBoard – the world’s first flying hover board

Created by ArcaSpace Corporation, ArcaBoard is said to be a “21st century flying carpet”. Visitors will be able to see the ArcaBoard in action, and purchase one at the show.

Dumitru Popescu, CEO of ArcaSpace Corporation, commented, “I'm extremely pleased to announce that the official introduction on the worldwide market of the ArcaBoard will be held at Top Marques in Monaco on April 14th.

“This ground breaking and green technological innovation creates an entirely new transportation sector, which runs entirely on electric energy. Launching it in Monaco mirrors the values of this state as a beacon in the green movement.”

Martin Jetpack – the “future of personal transportation”

Designed to be the “world’s safest light aircraft”, the Martin Jetpack is described as “elite transportation which promises to shape the future of tomorrow’s travel.” The first jetpack is due to go on sale later this year.

Steven Saltzman, director of Top Marques Monaco commented, “Top Marques scours the world for exciting products that are at the leading edge of innovation and technological development.

“We are therefore thrilled to be able to provide the stage for the European launch of the Martin Personal Jetpack. We are looking forward to offering visitors the opportunity to experience flying a Martin Jetpack using the full motion simulator.”

The Icona Vulcano – The world’s first supercar made entirely from titanium

A one-off creation from Italian design house Icona, the body of the Icona Vulcano took over 10,000 hours of hand-crafted work to create. Built by Italian coachbuilder CECOMP, the powertrain was created by ex-Scuderia Ferrari director Claudio Lombardi, and the man behind Lancia Racing Team, Mario Cavagnero.

The Vulcano can reach speeds of 1,000 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, and 120 mph in 8.8 seconds. 

Kormaran – Six speedboats in one

Named as “one of the fastest and most fun boats under 50m”, the Kormaran is a 23gt speed boat, which is able to morph into six configurations at the push of a button, and reach a top speed of 44 knots.

Depending on sea conditions, the Kormaran can morph into a monohull, catamaran or trimaran, with electronically controlled actuators, which reposition the hull’s pontoons.

Top Marques will also be presenting more supercars than ever before, which will be available for test driving on the F1 Grand Prix circuit. Tickets for Top Marques are available to buy now and can be purchased at
